As a highly experienced mentor, coach and Specialist Accredited Family Advisor with Family Business Australia for almost 30 years', John Broons has been immersed in business consulting since the early 1990s. Spanning more than 40 years’ of experience, his strengths centre around being able to simplify the complexities of business leadership, ownership, people and culture. Constantly working with business owners and executives on creating, challenging and focusing their business strategy and widely sharing his expertise through engagements as a professional facilitator, presenter and Keynote Speaker.

Group members enjoy John’s easy and approachable manner and say that he excels at creating a collaborative group environment. Probably best known for actively helping members seek out what others don’t… and continuing where others might fail. Possessing both an eye and ear for detail as well as a capacity for emotional intelligence, John constantly is challenging group members to look deeper in their search and to re-double their efforts in building stronger businesses.

Early on in his career, John worked within his own 3rd generation family-owned company. The broad base business of the family company – sawmilling, wholesale timber and construction – was the perfect place to hone and stretch his business management skills, as well as experiencing first-hand the complex dynamics of a company structure. John frequently draws on those personal experiences and shares them as examples (of both good and bad) when helping executives build their own company legacy and establishing positive, open environments and cultures.
